There are plenty of contrasting reports surrounding sales of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Some researchers think the handset is underperforming so far, while Samsung says everything fine and the device is pushing after a poor 2014. New data from analytics firm Counterpoint Research suggests that Sammy may indeed be right, although until hard data continues to trickle in month on month we would take it with a pinch of salt.It's probably enough for the consumer that Samsung has built a kick-ass smartphone flagship, but the company needs the Galaxy S6 to be an unqualified success. To that end, Samsung claimed it would sell north of 50 million units in 2015, a figure some say is looking unlikely. Counterpoint Research backs up the South Korean giant on the other hand, saying that Samsung sold 6 million units in its first three weeks on sale in April. It is no surprise to see that makes the Galaxy S6 the second best-selling smartphone on the market, behind Apple?s iPhone 6. Counterpoint Research is known for getting things right and is respected in the field, the firm said based on this early data that The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are on course to reach 50 million units sales by year's end. One thing is certain, the pressure is on with this device, because if it under performs then questions will be asked within Samsung. Interestingly, the Galaxy S6 is the company's best flagship ever, but it will also turn out to be the most scrutinized. source: Counterpoint Research
